There is something about bubbles that always elevate people’s moods. Whether you’re outside chasing them or inside soaking in them, bubbles seem to be the perfect stress reliever and may even be the missing piece to your Valentine’s plans!
As I have gotten older, I have realized that Valentine’s Day is not really about the whole dinner and red dress get-up that you always see! And it is most definitely not about the expensive $80 box of chocolates that last only a day (or if you’re me, an hour). It’s about being with the people you love whether it’s your significant other, your closest friends, or even your family. Though back in my high school days I would’ve wanted an extravagant night with ponies and chocolates, I’ve said goodbye to my super-spender side and embracing my thrifty side! This year we’re making art together to hang later! There are a ton of ways to be thrifty this Valentine’s Day and drawing a bath is one of them! So grab a book and a glass of wine because here are a few ideas for some thrifty but decadent bubble baths to soak yourself in this holiday!
1. Make it Mermaid
Bring the mermaid magic to your bathtub with ease by mixing two Lush products to create your very own oasis! This sparkling cocktail is created by mixing the LUSH Sunny Side Bubble Bar and LUSH Big Blue Bath Bomb! The result? You get a beautiful blue-green bath with a dreamy golden luster swirling throughout the tub. It is the ultimate combination for an enchanting night!

2. Relax in Richness
Chocolate is the official food of Valentine’s Day and you can still have it after your dessert! Here I present to you the Hot Chocolate Bath! And no, I am not going to have you open up Swiss Miss packets in your bath. This bubble bath concoction is made with 1 cup of powdered milk, 1/2 a cup of unsweetened cocoa powder, 1 tablespoon of cornstarch and a Hot Cocoa Bath Truffle from Shea Crazy Soap Co. Once you get this all mixed up, you’ll be soaking in a rich and steaming tub of hot chocolate in no time! This bath pairs perfectly with a Chocolate Martini! Get the Hot Cocoa Bath Truffles here!
3. Ease it up with Essentials
There is something comforting about the basics, baths included. Though it is very aesthetically pleasing to watch bath bombs do their thing all day, it’s nice to take a break and dip into the little things of life. This Epsom Salt and Honey bath is perfect for a relaxing night without the hassle of bath bombs and bars. All you need is 4 simple ingredients: 1/4 cup of honey, 1 teaspoon of vanilla, 1/3 cup of epsom salt and The Body Shop Honeymania Bubble Bath Melt! The result is a very creamy and soothing bubble bath! You can find the honey, vanilla, and epsom salt at your local Target or Walmart and you can find The Body Shop Honeymania Bubble Bath Melt here!
4. Float in some Flora
This is one of my absolute favorite baths concoctions! It features another LUSH Bath Bomb and always succeeds at making me feel like a flower princess! I usually start by soaking dried green tea leaves when the tub is half filled. Then I add dried roses, lavender and the LUSH Sex Bomb Bath Bomb! This is my absolute favorite bath bomb from LUSH and it has an amazing jasmine aroma! This concoction makes for a very aromatherapeutic and indulgent bath, not to mention how beautiful and pink it is! You can easily find dried flowers on Etsy or at tea shops. You can also find the LUSH Sex Bomb Bath Bomb here!
5. Unwind in Wine
Red wine is a gift from the gods and is the magical potion that helps many humans get through the day! It’s also the perfect Valentine’s Day drink! Red wine contains high levels of polyphenols which aid in the prevention of numerous health problems. This bath recipe contains 4 1/3 cups of red wine, preferably Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah (or Shiraz, depending on its process) or Madirans, 1/3 cup of honey, fresh red rose petals and a glass of wine, for your enjoyment! You can find high quality wines at winc.com for your bath and for wine-drinking needs, of course!
